  • Corporations Pay Too Much in Taxes!

    This video says it all.  It doesn't take much intelligence to figure this out...

  • Corporatism - Is It Fascism?

    We live in a time when corporations are totally self-serving entities (or should I say self-serving individual people?).  In the mid to late 60’s and early 70’s we began to think that corporations should be more responsible. Eventually cultivating the idea of what was often termed “Corporate Social Responsibility”. The idea of “Corporate Social Responsibility” is now gone. Should or can society have expectations of corporations where morality and ethics come into play? Government deregulation has helped obliterate the idea of Corporate Social Responsibility. To corporations Corporate Social Responsibility does not exist, greed rules the day.

    This is nothing new, in the 50's, 60's and first half of the 70's the extremism of AT&T's monopoly from the prior 50 years was nothing short of corporatism. There was nothing that could touch the AT&T telephone system that they might not claim they owned.  When our government lacks the courage and fortitude to stand against corporate domination such as this the result is a system that is void of competition and creates an environment that is stacked in favor of the corporation in control and against the pubic as well as any potential competition.

  • Healthcare in America or "The Fix Is In"

    It's been our official healthcare all year long, the legislation dubbed, the Affordable Care Act also known as “Obamacare”. How has it faired?  That may have mostly to do with your political point of view and little to do with the truth. Even with this new legislation enacted we still have a market-based system of healthcare. People will only get the amount of healthcare that they can afford rather than what they need or is required. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) takes our failed system to new heights with the only participants gaining value from it - the upper echelon of the health insurance industry, for-profit hospitals and the big pharmaceuticals.

  • Look Ma, No Democracy!

    Almost unlimited money in U.S. politics and a party asking political members to take an oath to the party!  Just a couple of the perversions of todays political arena. Watch Bennie's discussion of these issues and then think, please...

  • Nightmares

    They say you dream about the subconscious, that may be true and if so perhaps very telling. My dreams of late are much like the one I'm about to describe and that is certainly very telling.

    Having now to deal with a persistent, chronic illness last night's dream starts in the office of a specialist physician. The physician begins telling us excitedly, about new research and how the latest technology is creating huge advancements in the area of our specific condition. This certainly piques our interest as we listen intently for more detailed information, which we quickly learn is dependent on one specific thing. That one very specific detail, our physician informs us is that we must maintain our premium payments otherwise for certain we will be excluded from the benefits of any advancements in the area of our disease management or cure.

  • Return of Monopolies

    In a ever growing world dominated by corporations we have seen the successful resurgence of the corporate monopoly!  Whether you want to believe it or not many of the largest and most (politically) powerful corporations have a strangle hold on products, services and governments.  The latest news in the U.S., Kraft merging with Heinz, but don't forget Comcast and Time Warner or Exon and Mobil to name a few of the larger mergers in recent time.  These are the ones with names we are familiar with, how about Vodifone, Cellco, RBS Holdings and the list goes on!  The folks (crooks) doing these deals will tell you it is a good thing and that the costs of goods and services provided by these companies will go down as a result of the mergers (monopolies).  Not so!  That is the biggest bunk of bull biscuits you'll hear!  In fact once a "market" is secured by many of these monopolies the total cost to the consumer of these goods and services goes up!  By a lot in many cases.  Check the trend in the cost of generic drug prices recently, not to mention brand name drugs.  We all know how gasoline prices have out paced inflation by four football fields in the last 4 decades, not to mention food (especially food commodities - what a con job).

  • The New Inequality and the 1%

    The new book, Capital in the Twenty First Centuryby Thomas Piketty is being talked about in economic cirles as a must read.  I haven't read it as of yet, but will soon. 


    Regarding inequality, let's see what other economists are saying about it..

  • What, Me, Pay Taxes?

    It is simple, look who is not paying taxes (and even getting huge rebates!) while making record profits, click here!

  • WTF Are You Talking About?

    The pundits, news media commentators, journalists, many Democrats and most Republicans cannot accept the 'fact' of the Occupy Wall Street protests.  They are unable to admit that this is truly a grass-roots movement and the fact that it is the people exercising their constitutional right to free speech.  It is a portrayal of the dismal propoganda and dissonace thinking that the media and politicians engage in to suit their own aims and those of the money changes that have bought and control them. 

    They say the Occupy Wall Street protests are this or that or are not this or lacking that.  Bull****!  We have one party that is goose-stepping its main agenda and that is win at any cost, even at the expense of the American public.  Both parties are bought and paid for and their corporate, special interest masters control them completely. 

    I say listen, listen to the majority not the wealthiest minority.  We do need an overhaul and it will most likely take time to change the corruption in government.  Let's hope it is not too long...
